I erindringsbogen "Lady in Waiting" fortæller Anne Glenconner om sit spændende liv i skyggen af det britiske kongehus.

Anne Glenconner har altid haft et nært forhold til den britiske kongefamilie, og hun oplevede derfor både at være hofdame for prinsesse Margaret samt brudepige ved dronning Elizabeth II's kroning. Hendes liv var fyldt med drama, tragedie og mod, og hun fortæller om det hele i denne interessante bog. Derudover afslører hun også sandheden bag begivenhederne i den populære tv-serie The Crown, hvor hun optræder som karakter.

Anne Glenconner giver os i "Lady in Waiting" ikke kun et unikt indblik i den royale historie i Storbritannien, men fungerer også som et eksempel på en aristokratisk kvinde, der måtte klare sig uden en arv og leve op til store sociale forventninger.

Anne Glenconner reveals the real events behind The Crown as well as her own life of drama, tragedy and courage, with the wonderful wit and extraordinary resilience which define her.Anne Glenconner has been close to the Royal Family since childhood. Eldest child of the 5th Earl of Leicester, she was, as a daughter, described as 'the greatest disappointment' by her family as she was unable to inherit. Her childhood home Holkham Hall is one of the grandest estates in England. Bordering Sandringham the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were frequent playmates. From Maid of Honour at the Queen's Coronation to Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret, Lady Glenconner is a unique witness to royal history, as well as an extraordinary survivor of a generation of aristocratic women trapped without inheritance and burdened with social expectations. She married the charismatic but highly volatile Colin Tennant, Lord Glenconner, who became the owner of Mustique. Together they turned the island into a paradise for the rich and famous, including Mick Jagger and David Bowie, and it became a favourite retreat for Princess Margaret. But beneath the glitz and glamour there has also lurked tragedy. On Lord Glenconner's death in 2010 he left his fortune to a former employee. And of their five children, two grown-up sons died, while a third son had to be nursed back from a coma by Anne, after having suffered a near fatal accident. Anne Glenconner writes with extraordinary wit, generosity and courage and she exposes what life was like in her gilded cage, revealing the role of her great friendship with Princess Margaret, and the freedom she can now finally enjoy in later life.
